Americas Funnyman Neil Hamburger, the hardest working comedian in existence, has toured as hand picked opener for Tenacious D, Frenzal Rhomb, Mr Bungle, Tim & Eric, and Faith No More.
Performing up to 399 shows a year internationally to critical acclaim and audience bewilderment, he arrives fresh from sold out seasons at Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, Londons Soho Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Perth International Comedy Festival. Hamburger has featured on Marc Marons WTF, and his TV credits include Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Tom Green Live, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. His most recent album, Live At Third Man, was produced by The White Stripes Jack White in Nashville; an early Hamburger effort was included in SPINs 40 Greatest Comedy Albums Of All Time. If you hate comedy, youll love Neil Hamburger. If you love comedy, youll love Neil Hamburger.
Joined by his partner in crime Australias premier international parlor magician, Dr El Suavo, with special guests Jay Katz and Shanghai. A phlegm-filled sack of putrid self-loathing, Neil Hamburger is the perfect satire of a slick, professional nightclub comedian.
"If you've ever suspected that behind the glossy veneer of fake bonhomie of those perma-smile acts lies an ugly, embittered, grotesque soul well Hamburger is that demon made flesh. And my, these gags are certainly not for the faint of heart, as he plumbs the depths of depravity for the sake of a laugh." Chortle UK
"Neil Hamburger remains the greatest comedian Ive seen the greater majority of an audience walk out on. No one was leaving their seats this evening though, as this peerless performer shocked and delighted in equal measureOn the road for 12 years with scarcely a day off, Hamburger is a condemned showbiz lag, doomed to perform his antagonistic anti-comedy to potential hostility forever." The Scotsman
"A brilliantly awful persona of an old-school, C-list funnymanthe kind with an ill-fitting tuxedo and an enormous, greasy comboveron a very bad night." New York Times
